“Ah, young love. The air seems clearer. The sun seems brighter. There’s a spring in the step. Too bad about the zombie apocalypse…”
When I was a freshmen in film school I remember pissing and moaning about the limitations the professors would put on the length of our films. How could I be expected to make the next “Saga of A Star World” within a nine minute limit? After the smackdown from making my first “films” my attitude changed drastically.
Movie makers as well as audiences seem to think that in order for a film to be a real movie, it’s length must fall somewhere between eighty and one hundred twenty minutes. Let’s face it though, haven’t you seen a lot of films that started out great, or had a super premise, only to run out of steam after the first act?
So that brings me to the heartwarming and touching “I Love Sarah Jane” by Spencer Susser & David Michôd. It’s fifteen minutes of pure gold, and I admonish everyone to watch it.
Now, at this point you may be asking yourself “what does this have to do with Battlestar Galactica?”.
The answer: absolutely nothing.
And by the way; Sarah Jane is played by the young Aussie actress Mia Wasikowska, who portrayed the title role in Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland. I see a bright future ahead for this young lady!
Shame about her Pop though.
